huffington post" -- ryan grimm joins us. you write that the senate modestly occurred filibuster's. essentially, what did they agree to? caller: what they agreed to is something, a series of steps that will quicken the pace of legislation in the senate. there has been a battle raging for the last couple of years over how they would rewrite the rules of the senate this chamber. there were two separate objectives that slightly overlap. one is that progressive senators wanted a higher quality of legislation, it wanted more progressive legislation to be able to get through, and a requirement of getting 60 votes rather than a simple majority was standing in the way. for somebody like majority leader harry reid -- harry reid, it was the volume of legislation. he thought the chamber was too backed up by the number of bills. under the current system, it could take an entire week to get legislation through, even if it had a near majority support, because of all the different rules involving 30 hours a post- cloture time, and intervening day, another cloture vote, and a cloture vote before

the gentleman representing the ways and means committee, mr. ryan, who's also -- paul ryan, chairman of the house budget committee, in testimony said that he intended to make sure that he would produce a bill exactly supporting what we are trying to do here today and would bring that to the floor as would be faithful in doing that. look, maybe people are upset that we're putting their pay at risk. maybe people are upset because it wasn't their idea, but the bottom line is is that paul ryan, john boehner, eric cantor, the rules committee yesterday said we think it's a good bill and we were joined bihari reid, the senate majority -- joined by harry reid, the senate majority leader. when the senate majority leader agrees with the house republican leadership and join with them in trying to make sure that we get our job done, i think that's a rare day. i think that's a good day when we can work together, when we can bring legislation that the senate openly welcomes and might i add, the president of the united states, president obama would sign this legislation. and he said so in the stat

-term extension to give each chamber to go through order and pass a budget in our house. obviously, paul ryan and his team will work through, i think even a bolder budget to send to the senate. the senate and the president might not accept the bill we passed. but in fact, they are going to pass the bill and the president is going to sign it. as speaker boehner said, this is something the house should continue to do. we are in the opposition but we're in the majority but as the opposition we should take the opportunity to paint bold principles and stand by those and then we can campaign on those in the next two years. >> so, tom, you are a conservative. did you become conservative at some point, are you a natural born conservative? >> right from the beginning. i grew up in a very small town. my parents were not political at all. my father would not put up a yard sign until my campaign, thankfully, he did not want to offend the opponent. >> a good neighbor. >> so i had a conservative up bringing in terms of morals but not really what you would call a political upbringing. i did not think much a

director, standing by at that meeting in charlotte where ryan previs was elected to a second term. harsh words from jindal about his own party, to his own party. i heard a little laughter, maybe nervous. how were his comments received? >> i got to tell you, in some ways that speech by bobby jindal was a call to arms for conservatism, at the same time erin, i think it might have been a campaign speech. overall the theme of it was well-received. i think republicans are very frustrated about what happened in the november election. they were not very happy with mitt romney as a candidate at the very end. and of course, some of those ridiculous comments that we heard such as legitimate rape from some senate candidates were very damaging to the party. so right now republicans here in charlotte spent the last couple of days talking about how to recalibrate their message and this is their goal, try to reach out to minority voters and young voters, the new chairman says he's going to put a plan together. we'll see fit works. >> interesting. it's going to take them a few months to do it and the ne

as a contrast to some of the other big names, marco rubio and paul ryan. he has a good education reform going down there that is popular with the gop base. he is a devout catholic which helps in states like out oiowa. it really is focused on developing problem solving and he can be very effective. he's gotten better as a speaker which is also important. host: thank you for correcting me. he was speaking at the republican national committee winter meeting. tell us about other republicans getting was right now. guest: chris christie is certainly a media darling. the more he does to the popular with the media, he is being perceived as a good governor but it is hurting him with the gop base and he has gone under fire as of late. he has been fighting hard for funding for hurricane sandy release. he came out firing right after new year's ripping into john boehner for not getting the bill passed quickly enough. he has a status of, and doing what's best for my state, which will be good in getting reelected. but rand paul said he looks like he was just money grubbing for his state. he was also very cr

and majority leader erick kanter, who have ceremonial roles, will attend. as well representative paul ryan, who probably envisioned the inauguration much differently months ago when he was part of the republican presidential ticket. it is my obligation, ryan said at a republican retreat. a republican of tennessee, a member of the joined congressional committee on inaugural ceremonies said that it is about the peaceful transition or reaffirmation of power. this is the 57th time the the president of the u.s. has been sworn in, and it has always been done without a mall, without insurrection, without a coup. that is why, whether you voted for mitt romney or barack obama, americans will stop and watch the inauguration and celebrate tradition. even so, republicans will stay awake and will lead democrats revel in their absence. but if you are an elected leader, you have to be there, said a republican strategist. otherwise you would probably want to get out of town, three- day weekend and all. jackson is in louisville, kentucky, independent line. you are on c-span. caller: good morning. i would just l

know, very brave ambassadors like ryan crocker, one of our very best, who it would be difficult to say, ryan, you can't go do this even though you decided you should do it. what we're trying to do is create a more ongoing discussion between our ambassadors, our bureaus back in the state department who are regional experts, and our security people so that at the very least no ambassador is taking an unnecessary risk, however that is defined. >> with regard to ambassador stevens, certainly it was brave of him to go to benghazi on the date he did. i have to ask you honestly, though, was there anything in his itinerary on the 10th or 11th that required his personal presence? >> he certainly thought so, congressman he did, of course, discuss this with his own security people. we do have regional security officers in these posts. they are the ones that an ambassador will turn. to he believes it was important for him to go to benghazi, there were a number of meetings that he was holding and some public events that he had on his schedule and you know, he was someone who really believed strongl

to be an orphan. he certainly has had an opportunity to bring forward a budget or bring up the ryan budget. he's been in a leadership position. he's leaving the senate without fiscal responsibility. they are the ones that haven't passed a budget in over 1,000 days and counting. >>gretchen: wasn't he on the -- was he on one of the super committees or the debt commission? was he on that particular commission to try to come up with a bipartisan plan? >> you know, i apologize. i wasn't on it. ryan was. the fact is, though, that that committee came up with a mixture of tax increases which we've had and spending cuts which we haven't had and haven't had any cooperation with democrats in the senate to begin doing. what you saw, just before we left for the district work period for various activities like meeting with world economic leaders here in davos is we moved it 90 days so we could attempt one more time to pass a budget, something that would allow us to let public and private leaders around the world have confidence in what our spending is going to be and that in fact we're going to pay our debt
